    Not sure where you get your facts from based on Bible literacy. Don’t forget that all of Yugoslavia since 1945 was under Communism and many Churches were shut down."

    Based on personal experience living in southern Serbia. I have traveled around the country and asked many people questions about the Bible. The best educated are the Slovaks in Vojvodina. Of course our resident ultranationalists would say they aren't true Serbs even though they have lived in Serbia for generations. But the important point is that we agree on this.

    "Contrary to your false statements, Christianity continues to be in the rise particularly in Greece, Serbia and Russia."

    I never denied that some form of religion is on the rise.

    "I am sure that God does not mind some culture and tradition to build his flock."

    Tradition, yes. Pagan tradition, no. The Bible is replete with warnings not to follow the pagan ways of the surrounding nations.

  15. If you have not noticed, the separation of religion and politics is not strictly followed in Christian countries such as Greece and Serbia. The Russian Orthodox Church has been revived in Russia thanks to Putin. Maybe you prefer the growth of secularism and paganism which has gripped North America and Western Europe. (Jugoslavija, 10 January 2019 18:27)

    Secularism is alive and well in Serbia because nearly everyone celebrates slava but many don't even believe in God. And the Orthodox priests with their unbiblical rituals and pagan celebratory traditions keeps paganism alive and well eighteen centuries after Constantine legalized Christianity in the Roman Empire.

    Biblical literacy among ethnic Serbs is close to zero. I don't understand how a person can claim to be a Christ-follower without a basic idea of who God is and what he commands.

  32. The prime minister said Serbia-RSa relations go beyond the formal frameworks of the usual bilateral cooperation and contained something much larger than the "diplomatic" and the administrative.

    "What they are about is concrete, real care of Serbia for the survival and progress of the RS," Brnabic said. What they are is a large criminal stupidity of Serbia and Serbs. That will end very badly for both. Like the Serbian guru [link] Karadzic said in one of his lucid moment. "If it wasn't for Serbia nothing would of happened in Bosnia". We all know where the war criminal blame lies with Serbia only a frozen conflict for now. Just keep holding hands you two the blind leading the blind just watch for the cliff.

    What an idiotic comment. If you are a so called Christian, Christ instructed his brethren to follow the laws of the gentiles , in that period, Caesar. For Serbia at this present points, its elected officials which includes Brnabic. For you , maybe the law of the jungle applies. (Jugoslavija, 9 January 2019 20:59)

    Yes, Jesus instructed his disciples to "render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's," that is, to pay taxes. But Jesus never instructed his disciples to follow Caesar, to celebrate "national holidays," or to walk togeher with a godless person of any sort.

    If we look across the synoptic gospel narratives, Jesus almost entirely ignored the Roman Empire. He intentionally said almost nothing about the Roman Empire or its grand empire. Why? Because that empire is completely irrelevant. Anyone that submits to such empires, political leaders, or foreign authorities has apostatized. They don't have Jesus Christ as Lord. Many want Jesus as Savior but they don't want Jesus as Lord.

    God-fearing persons are peaceful and submissive to ruling authorities but never celebrate them, worship with them, and certainly never glorify any nation because all nations are pagan, immoral, and hopeless.

  34. The sexual behaviour of one participant at one public holiday has nothing to do with state of any church, unless of course you are an intolerant, hyperbolizing (aka lying) Albanian ultranationalist. (Zhukov, 9 January 2019 20:18)

    The problem starts way back when the "Serbian church" submitted to temporal authority. That, in short, constituted apostacy because Jesus clearly stated that no one can serve two masters. Either they are faithful to the Lord in all things, or compromising and unfaithful to the Almighty..."So, because you are lukewarm--neither hot nor cold--I am about to spit you out of my mouth." (Revelation 3:16)

    I realize that some Albanians will criticize the "Serbian church" as a means of discrediting the Serbian people but that is not my purpose. As a Christian, I don't believe there can ever be such thing as a "Serbian church" or a "Bosnian church" or an "Albanian church." There can only be Christian churches with Serbian members or Bosnian members or Albanian members. Preferably, they should be churches with members from all types of ethnic groups. Then they will manifest the glorious beauty of our wise Creator who adorned the fields with a multitude of different types of flowers!

    "After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb." (Revelation 7:9)

    You need to realize that I am a Protestant who tries to measure everything by Scripture. I am ethnically Serb, I have Serbian citizenship, and I live in Serbia but I measure everything by Scripture. My allegiance is entirely to Christ and his kingdom.

    The so-called "Serbian church" is a paganized form of Christianity since a Christian, by definition, means "follower of Christ." My assessment is always from the perspective of faith because only God's perspective is true, only God's perspective matters. It has nothing to do with ethnicity, culture, or politics. I made this assessment on the basis of Scripture and the example of early Christians. I try to never take sides with nation-states or countries. I know you find that hard to believe.
